“For the first time in the lab after many moons. Strange feeling seeing the signal in the oscilloscope :)”
I have to confess that the comment made by @FQXi me laugh out loud:
“@quantum_tunnel This sounds like it should be the opening of a physics horror novel. ;-)”
It does indeed sounds ominous enough to prepare the reader to enter the obscure depths of an optics lab. Not quite a new Frankenstein monster, but what about the old one with a brand new powerful laser! Then again, maybe not.
